Jose Mourinho said he was satisfied with Alexis Sanchez’s performance for Manchester United in their goalless pre-season draw against the San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday.

The Chile international linked up with his Manchester United team-mates in California over the weekend after initially struggling with visa issues to gain entry to the United States.

Sanchez was Manchester United’s star performer as he played for 65 minutes during the goalless draw.

And Mourinho was pleased to see the Chile star get some game-time under his belt as the forward prepares for his first full season at Manchester United.

Speaking in his post-match news conference, Mourinho said: “Good for him, first time he plays and after some individual sessions he needed this.

“He made a good effort. A good physical effort which is important for him at this moment.”

Manchester United will return to Premier League action with their clash against Leicester City on the opening weekend of the season next month.

The Red Devils will be looking to challenge for the Premier League title next term after they finished in second place and without a trophy last season.

Manchester United fans will be hoping to see Sanchez hit top form for the Red Devils next term after he struggled to produce consistent performances following his move from Arsenal to Old Trafford back in January.
